On draught at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas. Dark reddish brown color with a thick and rocky cream colored head. Thin lacing. The aroma is lightly roasty and malty. Medium-bodied and sweet with roasted malt and caramel flavoring. The finish is nutty and lingeringly sweet. A decent beer to accompany a bratwurst.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Two days on the road including Utah or just a good beer? The Hofbrauhaus was our first stop in Vegas (actually second but the Frog was closed for July 4!). Half litre glass (I still had to drive to the Hotel). Light roast aroma. Clean mahogany. Big foamy head. Dark malt flavour. Light finish. Good body. Flavourful and very drinkable. Trace of fruit and a hint of dustiness. Served a little too cold.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2009 Had at the Hofbrauhaus. Nice amber to brown color- and very clear with a slowly dissipating off white head. Nice carbonationa dn slight lacing. Malty aroma with only a hint of hops but is dominated moslty by munich, caramel and a touch of chocolate malts. FLavor is malty and nutty with a great smooth finish and aftertaste. Tastes like it is lighter than 5.5%. Overall a great dunkles.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught, at Hofbräuhaus München. Malty, sweet aroma, notes of dark bread and caramel, perhaps a touch of fruitiness. Deep, clear red-brown color with a lasting, foamy head. Flavor is likewise malty and sweet, but unfortunately lacks much in the way of a finish, just turning thin and a little watery. No detectable bitterness, just a touch of spicy hop flavor late. Light-medium bodied, palate is smooth and thin. Quenching, however.
